Say hello to the men and women of the local music scene, the ones willing to invest the time and the effort to provide the rest of us poor slobs with entertainment that's fresh, alive and locally grown. Support them as you would any local small business. They're doing it out of love, after all. They're doing it for you.

The goal here is to create an impression of what's happening out there, who's happening out there, and where one might look to satisfy that urge for live local rock, blues, jazz or folk. This document is by no means complete or error-free (as I'm sure we'll discover as soon as we publish). Despite our best efforts, it's inevitable that we will leave someone out. It's nothing personal, really.

Thanks to all the local musicians who found time to yank our chain and once again special thanks go out to for providing us -- as well as the rest of the Inland Northwest -- with a terrific local scene resource. Check them out at

If you're a local musician or group and you're feeling left out, by all means do something about it. Introduce yourself. It's easy. All you have do is call (325-0634 ext. 234). Or e-mail ( Or fax (444-4772).
